Training Day with James Adair

Hull chess is arranging a day of Chess Coaching and Training with IM James Adair on Sunday, February 18th, 2018.

It will be held at The Lawns Centre, Harland Way, Cottingham, HU16 5SQ from 10.00–16.00.

It is limited to those graded 150 and below.

Maximum 15 participants
Cost £15.

For details contact Stephen Greep (

The content of the day is not yet finalised; there is an opportunity for people to ask for specific themes, game analysis and we will compose a programme around this. Previous days with James have proved popular so book early!

It’s not restricted to Hull and District players and some places will be held for non-local players. There is a maximum number of participants (places will be allocated on a first come basis). Please note the grade restriction.

A further day will be organised for players above 150, later in the year.

Former Yorkshire Chess Association President and Secretary. I'm not the brains of the editorial team but I can live with being a glorified typist as well as the resident grammar pedant. I have captained Bradford A in the Woodhouse cup for over 30 years. I'm fairly easy going, sometimes diplomatic and I think my enthusiasm is infectious but not life threatening. The English chess world needs to wake up and smell the coffee before league chess collapses altogether.

    Should be a good day and I would be in attendance if the Yorkshire under 120 grade team did not have a match on that day. It will be an N.C.C.U. home fixture against Merseyside. Venue – Bradford Latvian Club with a 12.30 PM start and 4 hour playing session. I will be captaining the 12 board team and attending as non-playing captain.

    At the moment only 5 or 6 players have signed up for the under 120 team. If you are interested in being considered for selection, please e-mail me at and I will respond. I need contact details, including telephone number. In the N.C.C.U. stages bronze level E.C.F. membership is not a requirement but if the team makes it through to the national knockout stages, players will have to have at least bronze level E.C.F. membership.

    An opportunity to represent the White Rose county at anything should be sufficient inducement in itself. We will be playing away to Lancashire at some stage, so watch out for details on this website.
    NB. I am also captaining the under 140 grade team and am currently trying to arrange a date and venue for the home under 140 grade fixture against Lancashire.
